PlayStation 5 - Next gen is here!


Recommended Posts

The Switch is My Life Story. A few genuinely great songs and an army of weird, feather boa-clad girls and boys who’ll scratch your eyes out if you dare suggest it’s not the greatest thing ever.

I was wondering how someone would shoehorn My Life Story in...

The collective 40-somethings of Rllmuk reliving their distant faded youth by dropping Britpop band names and then Sony come rolling in with a brand awareness ad set to a score of Baba O’Riley. What the hell is going on?!

Remember the brilliant switch adverts showing people playing the system and how it would improve gaming by being portable and sharing with your friends? 
 

This is the exact opposite of that.

Kind of appropriate for the time, then.

Pretty sure almost everyone on here dunked on those lifestyle adverts for being unrealistic and featuring situations that would never happen and calling the Switch DoA. ;)

The "brilliant" Switch roof parties?

From their advert...

 

You're a PS5 gamer.

You're probably scared of the opposite sex.

 

You're better off isolated on a boat.

Let's call it a cruise ship. 

A covid-raddled cruise ship.

In quarantine.

Stuck off the coast of Australia.

Praying for that tsunami.

 

Not sure how you'd fit the PS5 in your cabin though. You should probably buy a Switch instead.

those Switch parties are kinda realistic? Replace the hot women with out of control nephews who will absolutely not let you eat your Christmas dinner in peace or 4 hungover lads coming back from a stag do in a 10 hour delay at Split airport and it has happened?

I don't think having people invading on boats is a sound idea for a marketing video in the UK.

 

Also, wtf at the PS4 guy video when it cuts to the 20fps game footage. Imagine thinking yeah boss, this is good to go.

Has everyone forgotten how crazy the PS2 adverts were? The David Lynch one and all the others in the same vein?

 

Or the Mental Wealth one for the first PlayStation? It’s a proud legacy of marketing that has sweet fuck all to do with the main product but looks cool anyway.

 

Rooftop parties, pfffft.

What is it with the yanks and those big red cups? They are in just about every TV show or film when the yoofs "throw a party"


They’re just disposable cups, like the white ones we have here but a bit bigger because they’re generally used for alcohol instead of children’s drinks. They’re more common in America, because they seem to buy more kegs of beer where we’re more likely to buy bottles, I guess because larger houses there make larger gatherings more common so everyone chipping in for a keg is generally more economical.

The advert sets a grandiose, fantastical tone. It seems like a continuation of the PS4 era adverts which put players into various game settings. I liked it, as an opening shot I think it captures the sort of larger than life tone they're going for.

This is an extremely good answer. :D
